Top 20: Life Hacks

life-hacks

I love life hack posts, shamefully so. I often find myself reading post after post of life hacks that I always decide I will try out and…. most likely… I wont, haha! I thought I would compile a list of my favourites:

  1. Use your glasses or sunglasses to prop up your phone to watch something when you don’t have a suitable stand
  2. If your mascara has dried up, place it in a jug of warm water for 5 minutes or so and it should help! Contact solution also works a treat
  3. A wooden spoon across a boiling pan helps it from spilling over
  4. Vaseline is great for growing your eyelashes (pretty sure I have seen this on Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging!)
  5. I often found myself watching Pretty Little Liars and loving the clothes Aria wears yet not knowing where they’re from. https://wornontv.net/ shows you! (US based)
  6. Spray perfume behind your ears and in the crease of the elbow to make it last all day
  7. Baby powder works as a great alternative if you have no dry shampoo handy
  8. Pineapple juice is great for getting rid of a horrible cough
  9. Nail polish remover is great at cleaning the white edges of shoes to keep them looking new
  10. Keepmeout.com is handy to stop yourself getting distracted when you need to be doing work
  11. Always Always Always carry a pen and a small notepad with you. You never know when you might meet somebody who is a good contact to have and not having a pen or paper to hand can look unprofessional (especially if you want to be a personal assistant like me!)
  12. Wine racks are brilliant at store hair products that come in large bottles – prevents standing them all up and inevitably knocking them over
  13. Use washi tape to hang your posters in rented accommodation where you are worried about marking the wall. Command strips and pegs/binder clips also works well (I have this in my university room currently!)
  14. The sticky part of post-it notes are great for cleaning computer keyboards
  15. Castor oil is great in stimulating eyebrow growth – great if you are guilty of overplucking!
  16. Scholar.google.com is much better than just googling when you need help with essays/homework
  17. Tic tac boxes are great for storing hair grips that everyone always loses
  18. Common mistake: E.g. is for example, i.e. is in other words
  19. Use a razor on your jumpers when they bobble loads
  20. An old sun cream bottle is perfect (after washing it out!) to store belongings at the beach – and it is miles cheaper and better than the alternatives you can buy at the shop.

What is your top life hack?
